What are your thoughts on putting a Model A crank in a T engine.

I saw a "performance" crank on Lang's website but the gains are so small that I'd rather stay with the original 2-up, 2-down original.

Heck, for $300 you could drop in a used driveline that quadruples the 20hp original. Next thing you know you're just building the world's most common hotrod. Ok if you want that, but lots of work to make it safe.

That's exactly what my car has plus hardened.

Just buy a Scat. Dan

The money required to machine a model a crankshaft still does not guarantee no failure. The scat crank is a bolt in and counter weighted as well. It is expensive but the value is there!

Scot
I've done it several times. Cheap and reliable solution, especially if you can do some of the work yourself. If you have to hire it all out, then a Scat is probably for you

If you have to pay someone to hot tank, crack test, modify and grind an A crankshaft, you would be better off with a Scat in my opinion.
